lyrics

We lay upon the grass
and stare into the stars
we wonder what they mean
we wonder who we are
we’re nothing but a spec
in this universe
there’s more to life than death
and there’s more to birth

I am at a loss
and you should know I never lose
everybody has a path
I just don’t know which to choose
If I lived in a fairy tale
I'd know exactly where to go
everybody gets what they need
at least that is what we're told

Just rest your head
We don't know who we are yet
Just rest your head
We don't know what happens next

We are the kings and queens
we are covered in our jewels
we like to cause a fuss
and break all the rules
it might seem like we’re tough
but we're always skin and bones
we're bulletproof
until we’re left alone

there’s no slowing down
we live a paced life
I put my head in my hand
and I scream
and when I close my eyes
everything disappears
I explore my mind
become a pioneer

It feels as if I can't move fast enough
travelling light speed through this galactic stuff
Clouds of matter seem far away to touch
but only because of the shields we put up
So I can breath easier knowing that I'm free
from the earth's atmosphere and it may seem weird
to pierce an old man's beard riding a horse through space
but at least we're not cosmic waste

Just rest your head
We don't know who we are yet
Just rest your head
We don't know what happens next
Just rest your head
Just rest your head
We don't know who we are yet
